FINGAL FESTIVAL OF HISTORY – “MISE AN FEAR CHEOIL” SÉAMUS ENNIS

Swords Castle

05/10/2019 at 3:00pm

Séamus Ennis was one of the most important figures in Irish traditional music in the 20th century. One valuable aspect of Séamus’ life was his work collecting traditional music and song in all parts of Ireland. Mise an Fear Ceoil shines an interesting and entertaining light on this part of Séamus’ work. Ríonach uí Ógáin tells us about the daily life of the folklore collector at that time – the 1940s. Róisín Elsafty, a celebrated sean-nós singer from the Conamara Gaeltacht, will perform songs from the Ó Caodháin collection and uileann piper Peter Browne will play tunes from both Ó Caodháin and Ennis. Part of #Séamus100: Séamus Ennis Centenary Celebrations.
